For all who have no clue what the RRRR is, it stands for “Random Runtime Roulette Renders”.
It’s a competition organized by B.W.C (Bald Wizards Club) that has been running in the members forum for a while, but we decided to bring it to prime time here in the Commons.
Who can play?
Anyone who can read this can play!
How do you prepare yourself for play?
The rules are very simple, but first you need to have all your items in some kind of order in a textfile, dumped from the itemized history into a text file or a spread sheet. Remove things like software, giftcerts, and special plugins from the list.
Then you use a randomizer to randomly pick 4 items from your list (your Runtime).
Randomizer that works well: http://www.random.org/
There are some situations where you allowed to redraw, these are:
- You picked something that doesn’t work, broken thing, only works in a version / software not used etc etc.
- You picked a software or add-on to a software or anything you should have filtered out from the list.
- You picked only huge environment props and will not be able to render a scene without crashing.
- You picked an item you already have been using in two RRRR renders in this content and that was picked randomly. Three is a curse - rule!
If you pull a bundle, use two three complete items from it, or more if you like, but you do not need to use all, but only picking a hairpin from V4 Complete Bundle is “too little”. Clarification: A bundle still counts as only one pulled item.
The rules of madness!
Now you have successfully picked 4 items, make a scene, you can add other items as well but the one you picked should be prominent or cleverly used. Render it, post it and make us all laugh! Remember though that the renders must follow the TOS of the forum.
The contest categories!
There are two categories, funniest and best, you get it. A fun render might maybe not be a super great render but tells a fun story it will place whatever the viewer just put in the mouth on the screen and keyboard.
It stats now, and will go on until Sunday November 18 23:59:59 DAZ local time.

EDIT: Important note!
To make voting easier, all entry posts should have a tag with TAG:<Name>#<Entry number>, then voting can just point to that. See my first post (TAG:Totte#1) for a hint on how. You can just edit you post to add that.
